"I received this email with the attached photo from a woman in Massachusetts"


Case of the Month
What are these light cream colored macules on this woman’s trunk?
What is your diagnosis?

Good Evening Dr. Crutchfield,

My name is XXXXXX and I am a 23 year old woman, living in XXXXX Massachusetts.  For over 10 years I have been suffering from a skin condition that Doctors have told me is called "Tinea Versicolor."  I have tried everything in the book (medications, shampoos, lotions, diets, photo therapy etc.) and I currently only see my condition getting worse.  My discoloration first began on my back and then spread all over my upper torso, most recently down my stomach and buttocks.  My natural skin color is brown and my spots/patches are a pale whitish color.  This condition has been a huge struggle to live with and has really taken a toll on me. I have seen hundreds of Doctors and nobody has been able to help me.  I want to know if you think that you can help me stop this condition and regain my natural skin color?  I have attached pictures of my skin.  I would really appreciate it if you take the time to view the pictures and let me know if you can help me.  
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.  

Respectfully, XXXXXXXX
